Dear Students,

Thank you for your patience and understanding during this difficult and uncertain time. We know this is stressful and is compounded by all of the changes that appear to be occurring daily.

For AAS & BS Students: The academic advisors in the College of Health Student Success Center will be conducting advising appointments via zoom or telephone while social distancing guidance is in place. Students can continue to schedule appointments in the same way they have by calling the main line at 907-786-1318 or emailing uaa_healthadvising@alaska.edu.

For Other Issues: The School of Nursing's main office is open Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.  Employees and students must use WolfCards or keys to access campus buildings. Please email questions or concerns to the appropriate faculty or staff, or students can contact faculty through Blackboard directly. Questions to all administrative staff should be sent to uaa.nursing@alaska.edu.  

Thank you and keep safe and well, 

UAA School of Nursing and College of Health Student Success Center
